My husband and I traveled to Nepal in April 2012 with "Friendship Nepal Tours and Travel". The trip was organized perfectly, from the rapid provision of information on the calculation of the tour till transfer to the airport. On our request we were given Russian-speaking guide - Naryana, who told us about Nepal in very interesting way and professionally showed sightseeings, and our driver was great. In the future, we will recommend the service of this company not only for travel to Nepal, but also to Bhutan and Tibet.
